Calculations are made from team roster data, that is published in tournament web site (U-18 Four Nations, Ann Arbor MI, USA).
The fact is that 4 of the Finnish D's on that team are undersized. Kuronen is roughly 5'10'', Honka and Autio are something like 5'9'' and Ilvonen is maybe 5'7''. It was brutal to watch 6'5'' tall Michael McCarron park in front of Finnish goalie Juuse Saros on power play.
